"We Don't Talk Anymore" is a song recorded by American singer Charlie Puth from his debut studio album Nine Track Mind. The song features guest vocals from Selena Gomez, and was written by both alongside Jacob Kasher, with Puth also serving as a producer. On May 11, 2016, Puth announced the song would be the third single of the album; it was serviced to contemporary hit radio on May 24, 2016.[1] The song debuted at number 78 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and has since peaked at number 19.

Background

Puth created the guitar line during a trip in Japan. He produced the beat in the Philippines and recorded his vocals in Los Angeles.[2] Months later Puth played the song for Selena Gomez,[3] whom he had met previously at an after party following the MTV Video Music Awards.[4] He thought their voices would complement each other well[4] and then asked her to sing the second verse. Gomez's vocals were recorded in a closet.[5] Her recording session lasted approximately 15 minutes.[6] On December 10, 2015, Puth posted a snippet of the song announcing the collaboration with Gomez.[7] On January 10, 2016, Puth posted a second teaser.[6]

Composition

"We Don't Talk Anymore", a tropical house song, with dance influences,[8][9] uses a breezy tropical house beat.[8][10] Bobby Oliver of NJ.com described it as "a pulsing club jam".[11] Lyrically, Puth said the song is about "relationships where you’re obsessed with that one person, but then you break it up peacefully, but it’s changed. You can’t talk to them like friends anymore. You can say you want to remember friends, but it’s easier said than done. It’s heartbreaking. ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ is basically the conversation a month after that type of breakup."[4]

Critical reception

Writing for Spin, Brennan Carley found the song "wisely trades verses between the two pop forces, cashing in on the trop-house trend" and added that it is "a worthy, breezy slice of pop".[12] Bobby Oliver of NJ.com wrote the song is "wonderfully infectious, and feels destined for hit radio."[11] MTV's Madline Roth praised the singers' vocals saying they "blend so beautifully together".[10] Marie Sherman of Fuse said the song is "freaking catchy" and that the chorus would be stuck in people's heads.[8] Lindsey Sullivan of Billboard called the song "ridiculously catchy".[13] Idolator's Mike Wass opined that the song "sounds like a smash".[14] Dee Lockett of Vulture.com deemed it "the chillest breakup duet.[15]

Music video

In June 2016, Puth stated that there will be a music video for the song and that it will be filmed in New York City.[16] The music video premiered on August 2, 2016 on BuzzFeed and was directed by Phil Pinto. Selena Gomez was never featured in the video.

Lyrics

[Charlie Puth:]
We don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't laugh anymore
What was all of it for
Ohh, we don't talk anymore, like we used to do...

I just heard you found the one, you been looking
You been looking for
I wish I would have known that wasn't me
Cause even after all this time
I still wonder
Why I can't move on
Just the way you did so easily

Don't wanna know
Kinda dress you're wearing tonight
If he's holdin onto you so tight
The way I did before
I overdosed
Shoulda known your love was a game
Now I can't get you out of my brain
Ohh, it's such a shame

That we don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't laugh anymore
What was all of it for?
Oh, we don't talk anymore
Like we used to do

[Selena Gomez:]
I just hope you're lying next to somebody
Who knows how to love you like me
There must be a good reason that you're gone
Every now and then I think you might want me to
Come show up at your door
But I'm just too afraid that I'll be wrong

Don't wanna know
If you're looking into her eyes
If she's holdin onto you so tight the way I did before
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game
Now I can't get you out of my brain
Oh, it's such a shame

[Charlie Puth & Selena Gomez:]
That we don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't laugh anymore
(We don't we don't)
What was all of it for?
(We don't we don't)
Oh, we don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
Like we used to do

Don't wanna know
Kinda dress you're wearing tonight
If he's giving it to you just right
The way I did before
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game
Now I can't get you out of my brain
Oh, it's such a shame

That we don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't laugh anymore
(We don't we don't)
What was all of it for?
(We don't we don't)
Oh, we don't talk anymore
Like we used to do

(We don't talk anymore)
Don't wanna know
Kinda dress you're wearing tonight (Oh)
If he's holding onto you so tight (Oh)
The way I did before
(We don't talk anymore)
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game (Oh)
Now I can't get you out of my brain (Woah)
Oh, it's such a shame

That we don't talk anymore
